North Belfast Sinn Féin MLA Carál Ní Chuilín has said that the Housing Executive has serious questions to answer around the development at Nelson Street following the publication of a Public Account Committee Report today.

Ms Ní Chuilín said,

“I have been raising issues surrounding the development at Nelson Street in North Belfast since 2009, 2010 and 2011 and the report yesterday confirmed my concerns.

“It has now come to light that three NIHE Directors raised similar concerns and those too were ignored by the Chief Executive.

“It is important that the public have confidence in public bodies tasked with delivering one of the basic rights, housing in a fair, open and transparent manner.

“I now believe that I was misled on several occasions in relation to answers to questions that I posed at that time and I will now be requesting an urgent meeting with senior management to address all outstanding issues.”
